In Response To: Re: Michael Boyle family (carol white)

From other sources (I'm still working on documentation), she was Melissa Jane "Jennie" Edwards
Her parents were David Edwards and Martha "Patty" Sinkey, who were married 3 Jan 1838, in Delaware Co., OH.
David was 20 some years her senior, and after he died (1853-1854, undocumented), she married David Pence/Pentz.

12 Nov 1946, Escanaba Daily Press, Pg 5
George F Hallfrisch, 26, of 804 Ludington street, died at 8 am Sunday in St. Francis hospital of a skull fracture received about 2 o'clock that morning when he was struck by a car while walking in the 1600 block, Ludington street.
Lloyd Baker, 27, of the Chemical Plant location, yesterday was held in jail awaiting arraignment today in justice court on a charge of involuntary manslaughter as the driver of the car that struck Hallfrisch.
Escanaba police yesterday said that Baker was arrested at 10:50 am Sunday at his home and later admitted he was driving the car that struck Hallfrisch. Shortly after the accident, police said Baker described a "green car" as the one that crossed the center line of Ludington street, hit the left rear fender of a car driven by William Johnson of 503 South 14th street, struck down Hallfrisch and then drove away without stopping. In a statement to police after his arrest, police said Baker admitted there was no "green car" involved and that it was his car which struck Johnson's car and fatally injured Hallfrisch. Baker had not left the accident scene before arrival of police.
Police reported that Hallfrisch's body was nine paces from the north curb of Ludington street. An ambulance was summoned to convey the injured man to the hospital, where he died six hours laer.
At the time of the accident it was raining and snowing, police reported.
Hallfrisch was born Jun 22, 1920, at Cooks, and had lived in Escanaba for the past seven years except for the time he spent in the military service with the US Army. He enlisted in the Army in July 1941, and was discharged in October 1945.
He served in the 95th Infantry overseas for 14 months in France, Belgium, and Germany under General Patton. In recognition of his bravery in service he was awarded the Bronze Star. In Escanaba he has been employed by Coleman Nee.
Surviving are his mother, Mrs. Pearl Hallfrisch, and one brother, Henry, both of Escanaba.
The body was taken to the Allo funeral home where funeral services will be held at 2 o'clock this afternoon with the Rev. James G Ward officiating. The Escanaba post of the American Legion will be in charge of military rites at the service.

Funeral services for George F Hallfrisch , World War II veteran who was fatally injured Sunday morning when struck by a car, were held yesterday afternoon at the Allo Funeral Home. Rev James Ward officiated.
Final military rites at the graveside were in charge of the Escanaba post of the American Legion [who did what]
Burial was made at Lakeview cemetery in the World War II lot.

9 Jan 1947, Pg 5
... Lloyd Baker, Wells township, who pleaded nolo contendre to a manslaughter charge was placed on probation for two years. Judge Bell said that Baker had no bad record and that the widow of George Hallfrisch, the man who was fatally injured when struck by a car driven by Baker, has "asked that I be easy on you."
---

The widow was my grandmother, Josephine Khollman. She was about 2 months pregnant at the time of George's death. My uncle, Robert, was adopted by my grandfather, Donald Fugere.
He is still living, with his wife, in Thailand. He has no real interest in his biological family, as he never knew any of them, though I recall seeing a picture or two of Pearl in family pictures.

I'll continue looking for t he missing/undocumented tidbits, including info on David Edwards, the death of David Pence, death of Jennie, etc.

Thanks!
Tiffany
